The spiders have shells like concrete. Legs are tasty though with a sweetness to them.

Cool nice start. Those crab legs are better than lobster. I try for them. But get lobsters. Little note. The warden was at Dana 9-29 at 3:30 am checking us buggers. They look out lobsters and black lighted them???? Any idea why???? They would not say just said nice catch let us go!!

They like to mark lobsters and put them in traps opening weekend to catch poachers. They used to pull the tail out and down and stick tags under the carapace. Maybe they have a dye now.

fish and game dye lobster and plant them in "commercial traps", thats them doing their part to regulate poaching. the black light will allow the dye to show up, and its all the time, not just opening weekend

Better to wait until the last week of October to hoop lobster. That's when deer hunting season opens in D-16. Most of the wardens will be checking hunting then.. But still keep it legal, just less chance of hassle on the water.
It is always bad when the warden and the women say it is too short.:fighting0061:

Good job rookie....by looking at your picture it occurred to me that if you would have waited a little longer happy hour would have been over and more bugs would have left the bar (sand bar?)......lobster drinking Modelo was the first clue....lol
